  • Good questions… for gameplay, tough to pick between Behemoth, Raninoidea, and Namazu.

    For looks: Ophidious

    How the hell did Spain get their 1000 gold coin from the Branwen??!

    I won’t be too happy with the Spanish if the Pirates narrowly beat them in ship count at the end partly as a result of this truce… all very interesting nonetheless.  And maybe the Spanish didn’t know at the time that the end was near….

    I said whoa out loud like 3 times when I saw that Branwen move.  THAT’S THE KINDA PLAY I’M TALKING ABOUT!! XD  😀

    I love how the Spanish protected El Acorazado.

    Really impressed by that random group of Furia, Antamasia, and Clear Wind.  They did a great job.

    17:19 is a picture of the year candidate IMO.  Especially at full screen.  Not only…[Read more]

    Glad the Spanish are trying hard to preserve the Santisima Trinidad.

    That Baochuan town capture was epic to me, nice appearance all of a sudden and coup by the Pirates.

    Wow the Zeus is basically running over the VW and Divine Wind!

  • Can Windcatcher be copied to a 10 master to allow it the 180 rotation?

    The Code says: “-If part of a keyword refers to a specific ship type, such as catamaran or submarine, that part can be used only by ships of that ship type. Copying a keyword does not change a ship’s type.”  Windcatcher starts with “when a ship with this keyword”….

  • Inspired by Tilorfire27’s video

    31 point Hai Peng combo: Captain Jack Sparrow (common version), Jonah, Anamaria, LE Griffin, helmsman.  S+L+S+L+S speed.  Probably coming to a UPS fleet near you someday.   XD

  • I think Corodum could be simplified in the wording.  Something like “For every turn this ship is not docked at your home island, add 1 gold to the value of this treasure to maximum of +5” to eliminate some of the redundant verbiage.  You also don’t need the word “but” at the beginning of any sentences.

    All three look fair and playable!

    (spoiler alert) I like how the strategy makes sense – that the Pirates would wait until the opportune moment to strike, and that the Spanish and French might be able to make amends seeing a common foe.

  • Awesome, thanks for commenting!

  • Ben replied to the topic Century of Economy 2020 in the forum Pirates CSG 1 week, 2 days ago

    Nice action.  The pileup in that fog bank reminds me of my current CG4 turn.

    Someday (likely for me in CG4) there will be a “customsgeddon” where there are far more customs in play than Wizkids ships, and nobody watching will have any idea what’s going on because they haven’t heard of any ships mentioned in a battle report.  XD  I like the 4 ma…[Read more]

    HUGE thank you’s to Tilorfire27 (discord username) for his online database, and to jetmoto-1996 for his Full Catalog he so graciously shared and is allowing me to put on the site!  I have put links to both databases (which include pictures of the game pieces) on both my homepage and the Information and Stats page which is linked from the main menu.

    Found my childhood collection the other way while organizing

    Nice!  The video link isn’t working for me – looks like it’s on a manage/edit setting rather than a shareable URL.

    My wife is sewing/quilting a playmat for me complete with non-skid backing. I plan on teaching her the game once that is finished.

    Did it happen?

    I would love to buy another booster box! There’s something so cathartic about cracking 36 packs! I am also considering buying a plunder pack- I currently have no 10 masters,

    Did you buy both?

    Really interesting French attack on The Devil’s Maw.

    I’m interested in that Acorazado setup with Blanco.

    RIP to the first Inquisition ship both that I owned and that The Inquisitor did. I know I had a second one but pretty sure its sails broke too years ago. Inquisition fleets will never be the same.

    At least it’s a common ship you can probably find for cheap!

  • I would also like to have seen player tins which would come with packs containing everything you need to build a 40 point fleet for a specific faction.

    This is a neat idea that accomplishes the starter deck mission without giving everyone the exact same fleet to work with.

  • Load this treasure face-down. You may reveal it at the beginning of one of your turns and roll a d6. On a result of 6 this ship may take it’s turn twice. On a result of 1-3 this ship may not be given any actions this turn, and it’s next turn. Once revealed this treasure cannot be removed from this ship, if this treasure is removed from play, the…

  • At the beginning of your turn you may roll a d6. On a result of 6, you may take two turns in a row. On a result of 1, your turn ends immediately, and you lose your next turn. This treasure cannot be removed from this ship. If this ship sinks, the game ends.

    O_O  What?!  Yikes… this is on another level.  I could easily use this in CG4 with the Ar…[Read more]

    That Spanish Eternal fleet could be interesting if it changes how an adversary fights.  An opponent will want to strip those ships of crew (oarsmen) or need extra cancelling help to deal with them.  As long as those Spanish ships have plenty of support, it could be a real pain to deal with.
